Q: Does a Person Have to be Alcoholic to Experience Problems from Alcohol?
No. Even if you are not alcoholic, abusing alcohol can have negative
results, such failure to meet major work, school, or family responsibilities
because of drinking; alcohol-related legal trouble; automobile crashes due to
drinking; and a variety of alcohol-related medical problems.
Under some circumstances, problems can result from even moderate drinking--for
example, when driving, during pregnancy, or when taking certain medicines. (See
also "Publications", Alcohol Alert No. 30: Diagnostic
Criteria for Alcohol Abuse and Dependence.)
